Older horses have a less efficient digestive system and also often poorer teeth than they did in their prime. As a result, a number of adjustments have to be made to their feed. Cavalor Strucomix Senior completely fulfills these special requirements. It mainly consists of extruded grains, which can be digested much more easily; biologically high-quality proteins, which are easily digestible and are converted quickly. Cavalor Strucomix Senior contains Struconcept, with easily digestible sources of cellulose that meet the need for crude cellulose. This is important for proper functioning of the digestive system.
An increased level of vitamins, minerals and trace elements that compensate for a reduced absorption of rough cellulose. Cavalor Strucomix Senior contains Air-Force, which includes garlic extracts and herbs that promote good circulation and support cardiac function. The high content of copper, zinc and manganese optimally support the joints, tendons and the entire bone structure. Cavalor Strucomix Senior contains everything your older horses need for healthy and active senior years and retirement.

Horses today are fed large amounts of feed concentrates, particularly sports horse and mares that are in foal or lactating. Their bodies need help processing them. It is mainly in the small intestine that grains are converted from starch into glucose. When at every meal more grains are fed than the small intestine is capable of digesting, this step is passed on to the large intestine. Inside the large intestine, the acid value (pH) subsequently drops (acidification), causing the micro-organisms to become less active and causing poorer digestion. Active yeast cultures are the solution for this problem, as they stimulate healthy bacteria inside the large intestine and hinder malignant bacteria (streptococci). This prevents acidification (pH drop), which allows the micro flora to operate properly.
Pro-Yeast provides optimal digestion of crude fiber, intake of minerals, production of B-vitamins, an effective yield of the total feed and, of utmost importance, a reduced risk of colic.
Crude fiber is an indispensable pacesetter for the intestines. Crude fiber ensures that the energy contained in the nutrients is gradually released. Health-supporting intestinal bacteria inside the large bowel transform these fibers into volatile fatty acids that serve as an energy source for the body. This type of energy, which is released slowly, is the perfect supplement for horses requiring considerable stamina to take part in a variety of horse trials such as endurance, three-day eventing, combined driving and trekking. The intestinal flora also greatly benefit from crude fiber. It has an effect on water resorption, thereby counteracting diarrhea. Furthermore, crude fiber thwarts the formation of salmonella and clostridia bacteria. The crude fiber that is part of Cavalor Struconcept originates from high-grade sources such as alfalfa stems, spelt and flax fibers.
Omega 3 fatty acids not only benefit humans. They are just as beneficial for horses, offering a propitious effect on their health and condition. In addition to a glossy coat, omega 3 fatty acids offer a wide number of healthful effects. Omega 3 fatty acids are immunity stimulants; serve as inflammation inhibitors; prevent the blood from clotting while prompting improved blood circulation and act as a defense against a host of allergies. This unique fatty acid composition supports the general condition of the horse.
This unique composition of herbs (including mint, thyme and garlic) provides a tasty mixture that even the most picky eaters will happily accept. Moreover, these herbs support respiration, digestion and the body’s natural resistance. The Air-Force herbal mix opens up the airways, thereby promoting the supply of oxygen, making the horse feel good. Garlic supports the animal’s health, as it is a source of allicin, a natural product that kills off noxious bacteria. Moreover, garlic offers natural protection against intestinal parasites.
